REVISED: The US Government narrowed its travel warning for Mexico’s Playa del Carmen

After further investigation in to what the U.S. Embassy in Mexico has called an unspecified “ongoing security threat”, the  U.S. State Department has narrowed its travel advice to Playa del Carmen from  the whole region to specific neighborhoods  as follows:

Due to an ongoing security threat, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City is revising its travel restrictions to Playa del Carmen for U.S. government personnel.  U.S. government personnel are prohibited from travel to Centro, Calica, Gonzalo Guerrero, Quintas del Carmen, and Villas del Carmen neighborhoods of Playa del Carmen.  These neighborhoods are bordered by Avenida Benito Juarez, 50 Avenida Sur (Highway 307), and Calle 34 Norte.

U.S. citizens should avoid those neighborhoods until further notice.  U.S. government personnel are authorized to travel to resort areas in Riviera Maya including those near Playa del Carmen that are outside the restricted neighborhoods of this Alert.”

The notice also said the U.S. Consular Agency in the city would reopen and resume normal operations Monday, March 12.

Travelers are advised to continue to monitor this situation so appropriate decisions can be made regarding any upcoming travel plans.
